On 30th April, 2014, Prime Minister the Honourable Kamla Persad-Bissessar SC directed that a meeting be convened with the Acting Solicitor General, the Commissioner of Prisons, the Inspector of Prisons, the Minister of Justice and the Chief State Solicitor in order to discuss and agree on a way forward on the issue of legal matters involving lawyers engaged in prison litigation.
In light of the tragic circumstances surrounding the death of Senior Counsel Dana Seetahal and the emergency meeting of the National Security Council called for today as a result, this meeting planned for today has been deferred.
The Honourable Prime Minister will also use this period to give deeper consideration to the concerns expressed by the Prison Officers Association.
Dated: MONDAY 5TH MAY, 2014.
